Morning sickness is a symptom of pregnancy. About 50% of pregnant women experience it during their first trimester. Contrary to what the name suggests, an individual can experience it at any time of the day or night. Morning sickness may be caused by many factors, one of the most common of which is an increase in the levels of the estrogen hormone in the body. This condition can manifest itself as both slight nausea and actual vomiting. In exceptional cases, it can result in low levels of potassium in the body, weight loss and dehydration.
